Buying online: Buying online: "It sounds like a great deal!"

Remember the old line - "If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is!" Twice this month we've done pre-purchase inspections on 'deals' for out of state buyers. Upon arrival at the '07 Mercedes, we took one look, called the customer and said "you really don't want an appraisal! Walk away!" The second, a '14 Jaguar XKR was actually pretty good, but had been in an accident and thus suffered Diminished Value somewhere in the $3,000-7,000 range. Nice car, yes! Deal, no! Protect your investment! Get it appraised!
